    I know my friend just started at Orange Park as a new grad making $22/hr.

    Is that as base pay, without differentials?

    She is an ADN and is working nights.

    Hmm....according to this reference list, a night shift nurse should make an average of $22.50 starting during night shift @ OP. Have wages actually decreased since this list was made?

    Do you know if they still have the programs for working on weekends or working an extra shift/week?

    Then, maybe I should take my 27/hr in Miami. I will work nights with weekends off

    that's a great starting rate! it's a sad state of affairs in this area, northeast FL. It's great if you have experience, but super-tough if you're just starting out. I'd be ecstatic to make $22 an hour WITH differentials compared to what I'm making now...

    Still waiting to hear back from OP...

    I have no idea. I am trying to get on with them at the moment as well; that is just what she told me. I think that she is going to be working weekends too, but I am not too sure as if she is going to be making more than during the week.

    I would love to know what that pay scale looks like 3 years later. I am a new grad (in NE FL) so this may seem like a dumb question, but if you just call HR at each hospital will they tell you these figures? Some have vague references on their websitesas to the pay. Just wondering.

    I tried that but was quickly shut down. I was told that pay would be discussed only after and if a job offer had been extended. Basically, they want to rope you in by making you go through the tedious hiring process and then discuss pay after you've invested a lot of time into the potential job. It makes low-balling easier.

    On the other hand, I think Shands posts starting pay rates directly on their website. $25/hr minimum for RN last time I checked.
